What part of my computer should I upgrade next?

After I upgrade the PSU, which part should I upgrade and why.
Should I upgrade:

- MOBO/RAM/CPU (along with an SATA DVD/CD player thingy and a new case)

- Graphics Card

- Just get a bigger case for now

- Get a new HDD

- Get an SSD.

the CPU on the computer is an Intel Core 2 Duo(one of the earlier ones too). The mobo is one that comes with the MPC Clientpro 385. I have 4 GB of DDR2 RAM. The HDD is 160 GB SATA, the graphics card itself is an Nvidia Series 8 (8400) GS edition.

Pretty Much my only signature...I'm mainly a lurker....you can find me on the IRC (or on DnE and their IRC).

It servers my purposes at the moment. Hell I'm on a 60 GB HDD right now.

Believe me, it won't last long.

Unless you don't aim to figure out how to squeeze 40 video games onto it along with other stuff like I tried.

Well then again my laptop(which I am using) only has 512 MB RAM, Onboard Graphics, a firewire port, is an HP, runs windows XP, and has a Pentium M processor. So I can't play many games, but at the same time I don't plan on playing many games.


Edit: also I do plan on using RAID (either 1, 5, 6, or 1+0 (1+0 has both features of 1 and 0, but if a drive fails it becomes RAID 1)), and, at least, one External Hard-drive at some point.

I don't know. I'd spring for a new mobo if I were you, but that's just me.

Yeah I was thinking to spring for a new Mobo so I can get an i3(at the very least I kinda want an i7 if possible) CPU. Also I want to move away from DDR2 RAM ASAP.

Meh I got the HDD for cheap(and it's a seagate), however I don't care that much about space.

Why waste time with that? You can just find more in your PC by deleting System32! Sadly, it doesn't work on Windows 9x, MS-DOS, Linux, Mac OSX, or Mac OS.
